Breakfast


We went back to the Palm Harbor Bistro this morning to check out their breakfast menu.  Loren got the Empire skillet and I went for a 2-2-2 Your Way.

The Empire skillet had sausage, bacon, onions, mushrooms & cheese on top of fried potatoes plus 2 eggs and toast.  There was plenty of food on the plate.  I really their scrambled eggs.  They were light and fluffy.

For my 2-2-2, I got pancakes, eggs over easy and bacon with hash browns.   It was good, but I’d go for the scrambled eggs next time.  Total bill was $20.

We’ve driven by the Palm Harbor Bistro on Hwy 19 a bunch of times and decided to stop in for dinner tonight.  There weren’t a lot of people there for dinner.  It seems more of a breakfast & lunch place.  Loren ordered the Crispy Chicken Salad and I went for the Hangover Burger.

 

The fried chicken on the salad was very tender and tasty.  You can tell it was properly marinated to make it juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside.  The hangover burger had bacon, egg & cheese on it.  The burger was a perfect medium and the bacon was cooked well and the over easy egg oozed just the way it should.  I also got the homemade french fries which were pretty tasty as well.  Everyone was very friendly in the restaurant and the food was good.  They have a big menu and we’ll be back again.  Total bill with a drink was $24.

Crab Cakes


Another tasty lunch at Craft Street Kitchen.  We eat here almost every week and although their regular menu is good, it’s the monthly chef’s specials that make it that much more interesting.  Today I tried the crab cakes

Three crunchy, home made crab cakes on a bed of Asian slaw.  The crab cakes had a lot of flavor, a nice crunch, and a bit of spicy heat.  I could have definitely eaten more than 3 of them.  Loren went for the Yippee Hippy salad.

This is an interesting salad with chicken, apple, walnuts, dried cherries & goat cheese.  I kept stealing the cherries & goat cheese off his plate.  Good stuff.  Total bill with a drink was $31.

  • Tasty Brunch


    We went back to Marker 39 with some friends for brunch today.  Everything on their brunch menu looks interesting but I went back to the same thing I had last time, the Cuban Tostada.

    I just can’t resist this dish.  Their pulled pork is really tasty and then add some fried eggs, plantains, rice & beans on top of a crispy tostada.  What’s not to love?  Loren ordered the Crab Benedict.

    My Cuban dish may have some competition now.  Those crab cakes were amazing.  Unbelievably flavorful with two perfectly poached eggs on top.  So tasty!   Our friends got the traditional Eggs Benedict and the waffle breakfast and all of the plates were clean when we were done.  They make some really tasty food here.  Total bill for the two of us was $35.

    Diner Food


    We were in Seminole today and stopped at Mama’s Kitchen for brunch.  The place was packed and we had to wait about 10 minutes for a table.  In typical diner fashion, they had a wide variety of things on the menu.  Loren decided to try the Greek Salmon.

    It was salmon with sauteed spinach, tomatoes and feta cheese with green beans and mashed potatoes.  We’re still not sure why the gravy is that color of yellow.   He said the salmon was pretty good, the potatoes tasted like they were out of a box, and the green beans weren’t anything special.   I went for the Eggs Benedict with hash browns.

    Again, the food was just ok.  The poached eggs were cooked right, but the rest of it lacked any sort of seasoning or flavor.  Overall, there was nothing to make us want to come back again.  Total bill with a drink was $25
